Do you ever look at the date and say, "What the HELL?!" Where has the time gone? I'm tired... I'm beyond tired. I have projects everywhere I look. Nothing is finished or even close. I've been sick. The rest of the house has been sick. The kids are out of control and fighting non-stop. The house is a wreck. The dogs are crazy. Everything is slipping through the cracks.
I type this with a bra full of sawdust, a heap of past due orders in the shop, a mountain of laundry to be done, a whole house to clean, dogs barking at the neighbors (again) and kids fighting over the computer next to me. I'm going to lose my mind.
What can I do? Where do I go from here? Resolve once again to get a handle on things... on my life.
I have a Head CT scheduled for tomorrow - I have lab work for tomorrow morning - I have a follow-up visit scheduled for next week. I have been avoiding wheat anything. I'm eating my veggies. I'm trying my absolute best to get decent sleep. I'm hiring a sitter to come one day a week.
I MUST get a loft bed built for the boy and put up his new book shelf. I MUST get the gabion baskets made for the front patio project. I MUST get a fence built around the soon-to-be-garden area in the back (which will also keep the dogs away from the neighbors house and hopefully stop their non-stop bark fest). I have to get caught up on this wreck of a house. I have to get my kids off the computers... but not throwing dirt clumps at each other when they're outside.... I MUST get caught up on work in the shop. I MUST dedicate more time to this... my job... the thing that brings us the income to improve our home, improve our lives, and allows for our family to do a few fun things and the kids to participate in the "extras."
I have to get my shit together. Wish me luck.
A work in progress
